Refund and Cancellation Policy
What CANNOT be Refunded
• All hotel and tour schedules are arranged ahead of time. Any person failing to appear on the day of departure will not be refunded.
All prices are per person in U.S. dollars. Regular Rates vary for each tour (collectively “tour package”) itinerary based primarily on when you book. Once your deposit is received by Lifestyle Venture Tours (“we”, “our” or “us”), your tour package price is guaranteed for your party, except where price increases may result from increases in government taxes or fees. Guests added to your party after initial booking will be priced at the then-prevailing rate. All prices are subject to change without notice. A single supplement applies; please call us for details. Room configurations are subject to availability; please see “Note on Accommodations” in the corresponding description of each tour package for rooming information.
By booking your tour package, you represent and certify that you and all members of your traveling party: (i) have selected a tour that is appropriate to your abilities and interests; and (ii) are free from any physical condition or disability that would create a hazard for you, the Tour Guides or other Guests. Please consult your doctor. We have the right, but not the obligation, to deny participation to any Guest and to remove from any Tour, at the Guest’s sole expense, any Guest whose condition is such that he or she could create a hazard to himself or herself, the Tour Guides or other Guests or otherwise impacts the enjoyment of other Guests or disrupts the tour.
Processing Charge For Partial Refunds Day Tours

Itinerary Changes or Cancellation By Us
We will make every reasonable effort to operate the tours as advertised; however, we and tour operator reserve the right to curtail or modify the itinerary, or to substitute activities, hotels, meals or transportation as we deem necessary. Please also note that during certain holidays and peak periods some activities may be disrupted or unavailable.
None of these modifications or changes shall affect the tour package price or entitle you to any credit or refund. We and tour operator further reserve the right to reduce the number of Tour Guides, and to modify other services to accommodate a smaller group, if a minimum number of Guests is not reached. Similarly, the stated group maximum size may be marginally exceeded if necessary to accommodate a family. We and tour operator reserve the right to cancel a trip at any time prior to its commencement for any reason, including if there are too few Guests, or the quality of the trip or the safety of the Guests would, in our opinion, be compromised, such as may result from unforeseen circumstances (acts of God) or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control. If we cancel your tour prior to its commencement because there are too few Guests: we will issue a full refund of your tour package price.
If you have purchased a specially priced promotion OR exclusive event that is 100% non-refundable from the point of payment, you are not entitled to any refund, payment, compensation or credit whatsoever of your tour if you cancel your booking. Please carefully review the “Special Notes” of your tour prior to booking. Please know that Lifestyle Venture Tours will always adhere to individual tour policies when applicable.
Reservations and tour components are non-transferable. We will make a reasonable effort to accommodate changes to Guest names prior to departure provided that at least one member of the originally-booked party travels; however, we reserve the right to pass on to you any third party costs (such as from airlines or Suppliers (as defined herein) we incur in so doing.

Deposit Requirements For Multi-Day Tours

The deposit amount will be equal to 50 percent (50%) of the vacation package price per Guest (the “Deposit”), not including any optional add-ons. For reservations made 120 calendar days or more prior to the adventure commencement date, the Deposit is refundable for 14 calendar days after original booking and thereafter becomes nonrefundable.
